How Republic is run
Republic is a democratic organisation, governed by an elected board of directors.
The board meets every three months and is responsible for setting the broad strategic direction of the organisation, scrutinising the campaign work carried out by staff and volunteers and looking after issues of financial management and governance.
The day-to-day running of the campaign is delegated to the chief executive officer, who is supported by staff and volunteers.
The board of directors
The board is the executive body of Republic. Its members are elected at the Annual General Meeting, which is usually held in the early part of each year. Directors can also be co-opted at other times of the year. Meet the team
Staff & volunteers
Day-to-day running of the campaign is delegated to the chief executive officer, who is supported by staff and a team of dedicated volunteers.
Republic is formally made up of two organisations. Republic Campaign Ltd is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee operating under the name 'Republic'. The company is registered with Companies House and it is the company that runs the campaign, employs staff and so on. Republic Campaign Association is an unincorporated association. Members of Republic are members of the association.
The executive committee of the association and the board of the company consist of exactly the same people. To be a member of the board you must be elected to the executive of the association.
